“To me Art and Religion are related to each other. They both are a language in which I try to understand reality and in thinking and talking, form a relationship with her”


‘there is no such thing as a good painting about nothing‘
- Barnett Newman

To me Art and Religion are strongly related.

They both form languages in which I -thinking, talking, living and working-
try to understand reality and its meaning.
In ‘speaking’ them  I actually feel connected.

I understand reality as  ‘Creation’ , designed  by the Artist par excellence.
In line with Christian tradition I call Him God.

Playing with paint, chalk, clay, bronze, wood and all those other delightful materials I look a bit like Him and I dedicate the results of my game to Him:

Art Deo Volente  
Art as it Pleases God.

- Willem Zijlstra
